United Airlines Ban on Girls in Yoga Pants Draws Feminist Outrage

Yoga pants show camel toe and ass crack. Should companies allow women to wear leggings (tights, yoga pants) to work? Are they considered professional attire?

United Airlines forced three very young girls who were children of employees flying free to cover up. In effect, the company’s position is that the girls were representing United and should follow United workplace rules.

But feminist outrage has risen over the incident. Sexually arousing men and boys seems to be the feminist game, although women claim there’s nothing more comfortable than yoga pants.

United Airlines barred two women from boarding a flight on Sunday morning and required a child to change into a dress after a gate agent decided the leggings they were wearing were inappropriate. That set off waves of anger on social media, with users criticizing what they called an intrusive, sexist policy, but the airline maintained its support for the gate agent’s decision.

The two women, who were about to board a flight to Minneapolis, were turned away at the gate at Denver International Airport. United doubled down on that position, defending the decision in a series of tweets on Sunday.

The incident was first reported on Twitter by Shannon Watts, a passenger at the airport who was waiting to board a flight to Mexico. In a telephone interview from Mexico on Sunday afternoon, Ms. Watts said she noticed two visibly upset teenage girls leaving the gate next to hers. Both were wearing leggings.

Ms. Watts went over to the neighboring gate and saw a “frantic” family with two young girls, one of whom was also wearing leggings, engaged in a tense exchange with a gate agent who told them, “I don’t make the rules, I just enforce them.”

Ms. Watts said the girl’s mother told her the two teenagers had just been turned away because the gate agent said their pants were not appropriate travel attire. The woman had a dress in her carry-on bag that the child was able to pull on over her pants, and the family boarded the flight.

Ms. Watts judged that the two women who were barred from boarding were in their “young teens” and the girl who changed into a dress was 10 or 11.

Ms. Watts described the situation in a series of tweets before her flight to Mexico took off. By the time she landed her tweets had been shared widely, often accompanied by sharp criticism directed at the airline.

United’s public relations team did not respond to a phone call and an email seeking comment on Sunday, but the company seemed to confirm Ms. Watts’s account in a response to her on Twitter, which did little to mollify the concerns of its critics.

In a series of dozens of tweets, the company said the incident was not simply the result of an overzealous gate agent. Instead, it said United Airlines reserved the right to deny service to anyone its employees deemed to be inappropriately dressed.

“In our Contract of Carriage, Rule 21, we do have the right to refuse transport for passengers who are barefoot or not properly clothed,” the company tweeted.

Furthermore, the company said the young women it turned away on Sunday were “pass travelers” — United employees or their dependents who fly standby “on a space available basis,” it explained. It described the arrangement as a “company benefit.”

“There is a dress code for pass travelers as they are representing UA when they fly,” the company tweeted. It added, “Casual attire is allowed as long as it looks neat and is in good taste for the local environment.”

Few critics appeared to be satisfied by that explanation, which also did little to de-escalate a perilous public relations situation for the company. United was the target of scores of angry and mocking tweets on Sunday, including from social media savvy celebrities like the model Chrissy Teigen and the actor LeVar Burton.

By Sunday afternoon, the company’s Twitter account was engaged in a tense back-and-forth with the Academy Award winning actress Patricia Arquette, who posted dozens of angry tweets about the situation.

Employees running United’s Twitter account spent the day walking a public relations tightrope: explaining to angry social media users why the company was not wrong to bar the young women from boarding, while reassuring potential customers that they would not also be barred if they showed up in leggings.

People like to be comfortable when they fly, Ms. Watts said, and leggings and yoga pants have become pretty standard casual attire for women.

“I’m pretty sure yoga pants are a thing,” Ms. Watts said. “They’re part of modern America. They’re a staple, a go-to clothing item.”

I’ll bet the pedophiles lurking on that flight were very upset with United for making those girls cover up. So, I wonder if some of this feminist outrage can be traced back to pedos.

“Hunt and Kill All White Women” Facebook Post Deemed Not Hate Speech

The only solution to Naggers mouthing off is to ban them from using cell phones and computers.

These are the white man’s technology. Allowing them to use these devices is cultural appropriation.

In Africa they would be communicating with each other via jungle drums. So be it.

Infowars

The way in which Facebook polices content on its network is under scrutiny again after it was revealed that a post in which a user called for white women to be “hunted and killed” was deemed to not be a violation of community standards.

“White women should be hunted and killed then we won’t get white babies who think the(y) own the world,” the user posted.

When the post was reported by another user for “hate speech,” Facebook responded with the message, “We reviewed the comment you reported for displaying hate speech and found it doesn’t violate our Community Standards.”

Meanwhile, posts by Christians that simply state bible passages in discussions about homosexuality are being removed, while pages devoted to showing grisly mock images of President Trump being assassinated are not taken down.

The social networking giant has also received criticism for several recent incidents during which rapes of women have been been live video streamed on the platform.

Facebook also refused to remove the infamous video where a mentally disabled man was tortured by a group of young black men when it was reported.

It seems that Facebook is too busy complying with threats to remove so-called “fake news” to deal with actual examples of hate speech and violence.

Flags for so-called fake news which cite Snopes – a far-left partisan outfit – as an independent fact checker, are already appearing when users attempt to post links to certain stories.

Facebook also began recently declaring Infowars posts to be “spam” and deleting them from public view, although this appears to have been remedied for the time being.

Paul Joseph Watson: My Last Ever Video?

PJW explains how youtube will carry out its new effort to make the bastion of conservative thought into a bland, boring regular TV channel that draws advertising shekels.

One upvoted woman responded this way:

Well that’s just about disgusting. I’ve already all but abandoned Twitter and completely deleted my facebook over this kind of garbage. If YouTube turns into nothing but a leftist echo chamber, I’ll have no problem leaving it as well. We’ll see how much the ad companies crybaby when there’s no one left to even watch their ads…

Although PJW never mentions (((them))) some of the commenters do.

Disgusting Jew Kurt Eichenwald Trying to Ruin A Man’s Life for Sending Him a Tweet

JOHN RIVELLO, ALIAS JEW GOLDSTEIN, INTERNET TROLL.

JEW GOLDSTEIN TWEETED THIS IN GIF FORM.

The alt-right is still buzzing with outrage over the arrest of ex-Marine John Rivello by the FBI last week for sending a Tweet to a Jewish journalist. Rivello called himself Jew Goldstein on Twitter.

How the FBI found the time to investigate a Tweet aimed at a Jewish journalist is unclear. They have no time to investigate most of the death threats aimed at President Trump and his family. But Trump isn’t a Jew. He’s lower on the totem pole since he’s a gentile.

Angry White Men

On December 16, 2016, Vanity Fair contributing editor Kurt Eichenwald had just done one of the weirdest interviews of the year with Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson — with props no less — when he received a tweet from a user named @Jew_Goldstein. It consisted of a single animated GIF with a rapidly flashing strobe effect. The text on the image read “YOU DESERVE A SEIZURE FOR YOUR POSTS.” The very next tweet from Eichenwald’s account, purportedly sent by his wife, informed @Jew_Goldstein that he “caused a seizure” and that the incident would be reported to the police.

The use of the strobe effect was no accident. Eichenwald is known to suffer from epilepsy, a “chronic disorder” marked by “recurrent, unprovoked seizures.” According to the Epilepsy Foundation, approximately 3% of people with epilepsy have seizures triggered by photosensitivity. Eichenwald had made it clear to people that he is part of that 3%, which is why he has been targeted by trolls with flashing images before.

Shortly thereafter, the Twitter account for @Jew_Goldstein was suspended for targeted harassment, but not before dozens of other racist trolls joined in the game, sending seizure-inducing GIFs and mocking Eichenwald’s condition. After he recovered, Eichenwald lawyered up, initially demanding Twitter release the user information for @Jew_Goldstein in order to proceed with a civil suit.

However, today, it appears that will now be unnecessary. After a three month investigation, the FBI arrested 29-year-old Marylander and ex-Marine John Rayne Rivello in connection with the assault on Eichenwald.

There has been a massive outpouring of support for Jew Goldstein since his arrest. A legal defense fund has been set up for Jew Goldstein as part of that support.

With all the screeching over Rivello having done “nothing wrong” and this being a “free speech” issue, it makes one wonder why these alt-right trolls are so concerned over one anti-Semite who was arrested for doing something stupid and criminal. But in a way it makes sense. Shitposting is what these folks do, and as Becky Barnes said, this could “redefine ‘trolling’ and what it means to troll online.” After all, Rivello stands to face tangible consequences for his disturbing actions. For many on the alt-right, that could be a worrisome trend indeed.

The arrest of Jew Goldstein is intended to have a chilling effect on free speech. The trial promises to be a real test of tolerance for the legal system. As far as anyone knows, Kurt Eichenwald was not treated for a seizure. He’s probably hoaxing. Even if not, how can the prosecution expect to prove that a Tweet caused a seizure?

Google Apologizes After Major Brands Yank YouTube Ads Over Racist Content

CHEERIOS CEREAL FAMILY FROM 2014 AD.

One man’s hate is another man’s truth.

As you will see in this news report, advertisers want nothing to do with “hate.” So why so many mixed race couples in ads? Why so much denigration of the white male, always portraying him as a goofus?

Advertisers feel like they can insult my race and my sex with impunity. Well, we’re awake now and we hate your hypocrisy and the insults you peddle.

Google may kowtow to you, but we’re learning to live without your products. Your boycott of the truth expressed on youtube isn’t going to win you any friends.

NBC News

Google’s EMEA president of business and operations has apologized for the misplacement of advertising next to extremist content on its video site YouTube.

“There have been stories over the past few days about brands appearing against content that they wouldn’t like to appear against and particularly on YouTube, and so for me it is a good opportunity for me to say, first and foremost, to say sorry this should not happen and we need to do better,” Matt Brittin said at a press briefing Monday at the start of industry conference Advertising Week Europe in London.

Brands including HSBC, U.K. retailer Marks and Spencer and L’Oreal have pulled advertising from YouTube over the past few days, while agency group Havas has paused ads from U.K. clients including Domino’s Pizza and Hyundai Kia pending discussions with Google.

Speeding up the Review Process
Brittin said Google, which has the world’s biggest digital advertising platform, has invested “millions” and has thousands of people working to make sure “advertising practices are good.”

“I’ve spoken personally to a number of advertisers. Those that I have spoken to, we have been talking about a handful of impressions, and pennies not pounds of spend, but however small or big the issue, it is an important issue that we address,” he said.

“We’ve got a comprehensive review under way — we have for some time — looking at how can we improve here and we are accelerating that review.”

Unilever Chief Marketing Officer Keith Weed, who was with Brittin at the briefing, declined to comment on whether it had pulled advertising for any of its brands — which range from deodorant Axe (Lynx in the U.K.) to detergent Surf — from YouTube.

“We won’t make any public statement. I’m a great believer in talking about where the industry needs to get to, and what are the things we need to [do] collectively, the first accountability does go to the media companies because at the end of the day we are spending our money on their platform,” he said.

“I think the best way to do negotiations with any supplier is one on one and in private, and so you won’t find us coming out and making big public statements about particular customers. And we are working hand in hand,” Weed added.

How to Monitor Content Without Censoring Content
About 400 hours of content is uploaded to YouTube every minute, Brittin said, claiming that 98 percent of “removals” happen within 24 hours and adding that it will be looking at its policies, controls and how those are enforced. But it has a job to do in making sure it doesn’t remove content that is controversial, but not illegal, for example.

“It is not as simple as it might seem, so you might say: Why don’t you just exclude content that relates to war or that relates to politics? Well actually if you were to do that you would exclude important news content or documentary content.”

“Firstly on policies, this is about what content within YouTube do we deem to be safe for advertisers, and we’re going to raise the bar on that,” Brittin said. “That would include things like looking at our definition of hate speech, or our definition of inflammatory content, so that we raise the bar on what is deemed acceptable for advertising.”

Google expects to make further announcements on how it is tackling the problem of ads appearing next to extreme content “in the coming days,” he added.
